London - Honeymoon murder suspect Shrien Dewani has lost a High Court bid to block his extradition to South Africa until he is fit to stand trial, the British Press Association reported on Friday.
 

A panel of three judges, headed by Lord Chief Justice Lord Thomas, ruled that it would not be "unjust and oppressive" to extradite him if the South African government gave an undertaking,  reportedlt by February 14, as to how long he would be kept in the country without trial.

The court heard on Friday that the government indicated it was willing to give that undertaking.

Dewani, from Bristol, has been fighting removal from the UK to face proceedings over wife Anni's death until he has recovered from mental health problems, including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Dewani, who is compulsorily detained in hospital under the Mental Health Act, stands accused of ordering the killing of his wife Anni, 28, who was shot as the couple travelled in a taxi on the outskirts of Cape Town in November 2010. He is the only one of four suspects who has not been sentenced.

The hearing was in London. - Sapa, IOL
